Tilda and Edwin hit the Beach


I don't know about you but I am ready for beach weather. That is what inspired me to make this scene with Edwin in Miami and Tilda in Key Largo. I colored my images with Copic Markers and paper pieced Edwin's shirt and Tilda's dress. You can purchase Edwin over at the Magnolia Licious Store.

Fran tage was used to give the effect of water and sand. I used stencils with Viva Blending Cream and then went over them with alcohol inks. I use a very thin like tissue paper which kind of resembled sand and matching paper to collage my canvas. The seashells are some that I have collected when I visited my son. The palm tree was chip board. I painted the trunk with Twinkling H2O's and the leaves I used Inka Old Silver and Green/Yellow. For the final effect I sprayed the tree with Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist.

The paper is from Authentique as is all the sentiments. Corner pieces and the star are Melissa Francis. I added netting, ribbon and the sun (which I added fine glitter to) to finish my design.

Here is a close up of Edwin:

And now for Tilda:
